Admissions and Enrollment

The Riverside Children’s Center is open to all children from 3 months through 5 years old. To apply, every new family must schedule an appointment for a tour with a member of our Administrative Team and complete an application for admission.

Riverside Children’s Center does not discriminate in providing service to children and families, or in its employment practices, on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, national origin, sexual orientation, political beliefs, gender, sex, age or marital status.

Tuition

Tuition is due by the first day of each month, in advance of childcare use. Tuition must be paid in full, even when a child is absent for illness or vacation or when the center is closed for holidays, snow days, staff work week, or other closures caused by events beyond the reasonable control of Riverside Children’s Center.
